Have you ever wished you could really focus on your songwriting without distractions? Come to the inaugural Take It to the Bridge Songwriters Workshop to unlock your creativity and get your songs flowing.
This three-day, two-night summer songwriting immersion will be directed by Steve Dawson and Mark Caro, co-authors of Take It to the Bridge: Unlocking the Great Songs Inside You, and will take place in a rustic setting in Buchanan, Michigan (about 15 miles east of Three Oaks) within walking distance of beautiful Clear Lake.
Steve, leader of the acclaimed rock-folk band Dolly Varden, has taught his innovative songwriting classes at the Old Town School of Folk Music for more than a decade. Mark has written extensively about entertainment for the Chicago Tribune and The New York Times, with a keen interest in music and the creative process. Together they will present an inspiring weekend that will include:
*Interactive group presentations on ways to improve all aspects of your songwriting, including form, melody, lyrics, rhythm, performance, and getting to that place where you can be most creative.
*In depth one-on-one sessions with Steve and Mark to help you fine-tune your work.
*Option to record a high quality vocal-guitar (or instrument of choice) demo
*Chill-out time to recharge your batteries, perhaps while venturing out on a kayak on Clear Lake or taking a hike in the bucolic setting.
*A culminatingconcert at a local coffeehouse where each participant will get to perform what she or he has created over the past few days.
Meals will be provided by Natalie Gaza, and packages are available with or without lodging. Lodging options include private rooms in the main house and private or shared accommodations in vintage campers and a small cottage located on the grounds. You’re also welcome to explore B&B and hotel options nearby.
